On a national workshop titled "Introduction to Carbon Simulator: A Path to Climate Action" an advanced computer-based simulation model designed for calculating carbon footprint and modelling future scenarios was presented.
The tool supports calculation of local carbon footprint, which will help the municipalities to analyse the energy flow within the systems, evaluate the greenhouse gas emission level and to plan the CO2 reduction measures to achieve local climate objectives. Through this tool municipalities can create synergies between policy planning at the local and national levels, having an opportunity for international collaboration and with partners in Baltic Sea area. Currently the tool is under development phase.
Deepshikha Singhania from Sustainable Business Hub commenced the event with an overview of the project's background, purpose, objectives, and vision, outlining strategies for effective energy planning and greenhouse gas emission reduction. Followed by our expert Per-Johan then demonstrated the practical application of the tool in real-based scenarios across sectors such as building, transportation, and heating. There was a total of 24 participants from different municipalities of regions Kronoberg, Kalmar, Blekinge, and Skåne, along with one of our project partners from Lappland Municipal Association representative Silva Herrmann, contributed to the workshop's success. The workshop was a well-organized and informative success. The project is financed by Interreg Baltic Sea Region.
The workshop was hosted by Sustainable Business Hubfor the project Commit Climate. It focused on municipalities in the south of Sweden and received crucial support from Energikontor Syd – Energy Agency Southern Sweden, a key Associated Partner in the project.
